Hi there,

I am looking for hard disk with anti virus. Do you know any name in the hard drivers world provide that type of H/D I heard from someone that Western Digital offer like that hard disk with anti-virus but I couldn't find that on thier web site.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Honestly, I have not heard such a thing.  Anti-Virus is software and Hard Drives are hardware.

That "someone" may be pulling your leg.

Good Luck.
They were probably talking about something along the lines of Data Lifegaurd, or maybe if they bought a retail drive it came with a free copy of AV.

"WD Data Lifeguard Technology
 Exclusive Data Lifeguard data protection features include shock protection, an environmental protection system and real-time embedded error detection and repair. WD's Data Lifeguard technology automatically finds, isolates and repairs problems that may develop over the life of a hard drive."

As Saastech points out, there is really nothing a HD can do at a hardware level to prevent or dectect viruses. Although I do vaguely remember someone was marketing some sort of "Protection feature" with their drives, I don't remember what brand though, I just rad it and knew right away it was crap.

Hope that helps.
